General Information

 

The Society of Physics Students hosts an Annual Pumpkin Drop. We start with music, drinks, and student organizations (including activities and goodies). Then we have a free costume contest, for anyone who would like to participate, that includes prizes for various categories. The final event is the actual dropping of pumpkins, big and small, that have been frozen in Liquid Nitrogen so that they shatter upon impact. This event will be free and open to both the university and public. We invite student organizations to contact us (see below) if they would like to have a table.

Annual ħ Dinner Party

To commemorate a successful year involved with SPS, the group meets in early May for an awards ceremony. The awards cover a wide range of recognitions (both serious and humorous), and the event keeps the group's spirits high when entering the summer.
